Krysia D Michna Nowak BA


International Artist

Krysia D. Michna-Nowak is one of the most respected contemporary artists in the UK, specialising in commissioned portraits and paintings for your home or workplace.

Interior design trends come and go, but a painting is a source of pleasure for life. Whether you are looking for an original painting for your home or workplace or would like to commission a unique portrait of yourself or a loved one, choose Krysia’s Studio in Hitchin – one of the most notable contemporary artists in the UK.

Featured in ‘Who’s Who – Women of the World’ for her contributions to art, Krysia D. Michna-Nowak specialises in portraits of real people, paintings for offices, restaurants and other workplaces, interior design commissions and a range of quirky cats and still life paintings.

A professional artist since the age of 15, Krysia was born in England to Polish parents and as such, her art has been influenced by Polish culture, fairy tales, theatre, circus and the fashion world. In her own words, Krysia’s art is “dramatic, arresting, thought provoking and, above all, original.”

Although based in Hitchin, Krysia’s Studio has exhibited widely in the UK and France, including Nice Airport and is now regarded as one of the finest artists in the area.

Commissioned Portraits

Immortalise yourself or a loved one forever with an original portrait by Krysia D. Michna-Nowak. Created as a mono print, your painting is then overlaid in acrylics to become unique, mixed media art.

Krysia’s greatest asset is her rampant imagination; nothing is duplicated in any way. The Hitchin based artist will ensure that your portrait is perfect, from the presentation to the framing.

And with prices starting at £500, when you commission a portrait with the one of the finest artists in the UK, you are guaranteed a unique and affordable piece of art to enjoy forever.

Your Satisfaction Guaranteed

It’s simple – if you don’t like the commissioned piece, you don’t have to pay for it, although, when it comes to portraits, Krysia’s Studio hasn’t had a single unhappy customer in almost 40 years!

Fine Art Doesn’t Have to be Expensive!

If a commissioned portrait is little too much for your budget, why not choose a giclée print from Krysia’s studio? Giclée is an affordable way of making fine art prints using ink-jet printing, and can still be personalised with additional painting by Krysia.
